Airport Central Station
With the roof in place, major structural works are starting to wind up and building finishes are taking centre stage at Airport Central Station.
Below ground, at concourse level, fit-out of the 35m-long and 15m-high triple-system escalator is underway.
At platform level, floor tiling is underway and final touches are being applied to the ceiling panels.
Other activities across all levels include cable pulling, installation of permanent and emergency lights, painting of walls and epoxy painting of floors.
Construction of the Skybridge between the airport terminals and the station reached practical completion in early 2020. Once operational, the elevated walkway will provide undercover access to Airport Central Station. From this point, passengers will be able to travel by escalator or lift down to the concourse level.
Within the station forecourt permanent civil works are in full swing, resulting in the construction site footprint slowly shrinking as work areas are turned back into car parking bays and roads.
Also underway is the installation of cladding around the above-ground ventilation fans. Six fans have been installed at the western and eastern sides of the station building above the tunnels. Capable of pushing 70 cubic metres of air per second into either direction they will assist with tunnel pressurisation and, in the case of a fire, smoke extraction.
